In connection with climate change hysteria:
Listening to BBC Radio’s Today programme this morning on the Extinction Rebellion protests was a frightening experience in itself. The BBC has decided there can be no challenge to “climate change” theory, other wise known as anthropogenic global warming (AGW). In its notorious “crib sheet” to staff, it advised: “As climate change is accepted as happening, you do not need a ‘denier’ to balance the debate”.
Thus the BBC is engaged in the extinction of journalism…
Petteri Taalas, the secretary-general of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), told the Talouselämä magazine in Finland of his concerns about doomsday climate extremists calling for radical action to prevent a purported apocalypse.
“It is not going to be the end of the world. The world is just becoming more challenging. In parts of the globe living conditions are becoming worse, but people have survived in harsh conditions.” …
“The IPCC reports have been read in a similar way to the Bible: you try to find certain pieces or sections from which you try to justify your extreme views. This resembles religious extremism.”
What are witnessing is not the imminent extinction of the planet. It is the extinction of reason.Melanie Phillips, “The Extinction of Reason” at MelaniePhillips.com
It’s one thing to enthrone Reason, as the French Revolution did. It is quite another to believe that it does not exist. Can reason survive a disbelief in its existence?
